This time the Speaker is on about positive campaigning:
Speaking of the Speaker... I watched him on Tavis Smiley's show tonight and Mr. Smiley posed the usual, customary, and reasonable exit question: are you going to run in 2012? Rather than be coy about it, Mr. Gingrich essentially repeated what CNN reported about a week ago... which is to say he's weighing his options and will decide around the first of next year. Fair enough. And better than the "nudge-nudge, wink-wink" BS we usually get.
I'm on the record about Newt: I like him. I haven't made up my mind as to whether or not he'd make a good president. I have no doubt he has the intellectual horsepower and the political savvy for the job, I just worry about his underlying character. We've gone on about this before, haven't we? Often, as it turns out.
